I'm Gorgeous (Gok Wan Told Me So)

Released on Rosebud Music in September, I'm Gorgeous (Gok Wan Told Me So) is the rocky, rootsy, fiddlesome State Of Undress' latest single. Their latest album, Journeys Of The Heart, was recently reviewed here also.

Every once in a blue moon (or year, or decade) a 'novelty' song comes along. More often than not, it is utterly cringeworthy. I'm Gorgeous (Gok Wan Told Me So) could be called something of a novelty song, it's true. But it certainly does not fall into the category of cringeworthy novelties. It is incredibly catchy, of course - almost impossible to get out of your head once heard (you have been warned!) - and even a bit cheesy (in the nicest possible way), with a superb swing, and absolutely great fun. But there is also a serious message, that of Gok Wan himself in his television show, How To Look Good Naked, that you don't have to conform to size zero super model standards, or any other standards inflicted upon us by the media, advertising and so on, and still look gorgeous. (If Gok Wan has not reached your quarter of the planet yet, check his web site.)

I'm Gorgeous (Gok Wan Told Me So) is like the man himself - flamboyant, charismatic, a little bit cheesy (in the nicest possible way), and just gorgeous. Is it any wonder then that when Gok Wan heard it, he loved it and wanted it playing on his web site? Hardly! And you can hear it playing there in all its glory, of course. And there's even a link to the band's web site, too.

There is a wonderful spontaneity about I'm Gorgeous (Gok Wan Told Me So). You could be listening to it being played live. Gorgeous. State Of Undress at their irrepressible, exuberant best.

Who could possibly resist this irresistible, quirky, folksy-jazzy, humorous fun song with a positive message? Go on, 'get naked' and buy State Of Undress' I'm Gorgeous (Gok Wan Told Me So). With a little bit of luck and your help, it might even chart! It's just gorgeous!
